Suspect in Alleged Home Invasion Killed by Gunfire

Sheriff’s deputies have identified a man shot and killed while allegedly trying to break into a home in Pulaski County Wednesday night.

Right now, deputies believe the incident was a home invasion where the victim allegedly tried to kick down the door to a home, when gunfire erupted.

When authorities arrived at 3800 Vinson Road, they found a man lying on the side of the road with a gunshot wound to the head. The victim was identified as 20-year-old Stephen Woods of Little Rock. He later died at a local hospital.

Detectives believe Woods was running from the residence when several gunshots were fired–some from the house, and some toward the house.

(John Rehrauer, Pulaski Co. Sheriff’s Department) “The homeowner said there were a number of people outside he saw. We believe there are involved and are actively looking for them and running down all leads.”

A neighborhood resident says he’s shocked someone would randomly target a home on Vinson Road.

(Matt Cicirello, Resident) “This has been a very peaceful neighborhood, no trouble whatsoever. We love it around here, this is the last thing we want.”

The investigation continues.
